Full Audi Q5 review: www.autoexpress.co.uk/audi/q5

The Audi Q5 has been one of the German brand’s best-selling models since it launched back in 2008. Now it’s getting an all-new generation - and Auto Express has driven a very late prototype as senior engineers gave the car the green light for production.

Due on sale at the start of 2017, with deliveries due from April, the new Q5 sits on a shortened version of the MLB Evo platform that underpins the latest Q7, and gets many of the same benefits. Chief among these is a loss of around 90kg compared with the car it replaces, helping engineers to deliver improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 figures

      Are they 19" or 20" alloys?

      Not sure why they always concern themselves with the handling. It's an SUV. If I want good handling I'll buy a sports car or sport sedan

      I'd take a F-Pace over this any day of the week. Audi's are dull to drive.

      Diesel is such a filthy fuel. Ten times more NOx and particulates than a petrol car.

      So this 3.0 tdi 286hp engine is top of the line in diesel engines or there will be more powerful diesel engine like previously sq5 had 313/320 hp?

      SomeRandomGuy yeah 340+ should be correct for the new SQ5, because the pre gen had 340hp, too... and Audi uses the same engines over all models, so it would technically be possible that Audi offers a 320/326hp option for the Q7 because the A6/A7 already have those or they just replace the 272hp with the new 286hp but I'm not sure about this one...
      (This is just speculation) Audi will probably release a RSQ5 and maaaaayyybee it'll be a Diesel hence they tested a few years ago a RS5 TDI...

      +danI43541 but still doesn´t make a sense.
      most powerful Q7 TDI has 272hp, considering it is a bigger and heavier vehicle than Q5 which has 286hp.

      Don´t know why audi did this.

      but I am happy for the new SQ5, if it is true 340+ hp, that would be really great. I like the design of the Q5, it is my favorite compact suv.

      SomeRandomGuy Audi will probably release a SQ5 TDI with approx. 340+ hp
      And there are even rumors about a RSQ5 with the V6 TT from the RS4 , but it's a petrol.

      Not one of Audi's nicer designs, it's body lines are very straight and in my opinion verging on ugly. The monotone review unfortunately doesn't exactly make things anymore exciting either, sorry!

      Maybe it's better to comment on the video than other people's opinions? Just a thought. I mean, we can affect how these videos are done, for us the audience. But criticizing other people's take on the video and their opinions about it?
